A Collision of Constitutional Rights & Constitutional Values

Shall we, flip for it???  Commentaries off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The natives who were caught, hunting the animals were sentenced, and they’d, filed for an amendment, and it’d, sparked up this war between the rights of the natives and the protection of wildlife.  Although the Grand Justice ruled on the number 803 explanation, but from the disappointments of the natives, it’s still not, resolved, perfectly.

The key points of this particular explanation of the constitution lies in the although it’s legal for the natives to use their homemade guns to shoot the animals on the reserves, but, it’s still not enough rights for the natives; other than their culture, the natives used the hunted animals as offerings as well as sharing the catches with their own next-of-kin, but, the hunting of the endangered species is still, illegal.

In this war of hunting culture versus environmentalism protection, the natives believed that there wasn’t any, conflicts of the two, but the culture preservation and the identifying with one’ own people, that’s irreplaceable by the animal protections; while the grand justice stressed that we must, weigh both sides equally, but the natives’ hunting the animals are for their own, consumptions not for any other purposes, and it would still, cause an impact on the wildlife, especially the endangered species here.

It’s not hard to understand the natives’ upset over the ruling, but the meaning of the Grand Justice’s explanation is worth thought too: the justice stated, “the constitution guarantees that the…the natives shall have their rights to hunt as a part of their culture.”, which showed the importance of the laws’ believing the traditions, the cultures of the native people, but at the same time, it’d stated, that the protection of wildlife is, also, a vital value of the constitution.  And, as two laws collide, then, there may not be, the one-hundred-percent, guarantees to be, offered to the sides.

The rights of the natives and the animal protections, should NOT only have the oppositional sides to them.  In actuality, a lot of the foods at the mountain local food shops fitted to, the laws of “self-use” restrictions.  If we can, help more natives understand, that the hunters can be turned into, the protectors of wildlife, then this will, make the forest, the mountains, more beautiful than ever in Taiwan.

And so, when culture and wildlife protection collide, which side do we take?  And, can we, keep both sides happy?  Like in the whaling of the Japanese on the seas, they’d hunted just about all the fishes and whales, because they’re, a people, whose primary diets are, fish, and yet, when they go off to the open waters, not their own territories, to hunt, then, there IS, a problem, and, this is similar to this, but, maybe, the government can place limits on the sizes of the wildlife, and, teaching the natives about the conservation of species, to get the people on board, to help out, that way, both sides, win.
